Dedications are designed for parents to take time to specifically dedicate their child to God.
We offer parent & child dedication ceremonies twice a year. The next dedication ceremony will be Sunday, March 26 from 4-5pm. Prior to the Dedication Celebration, parents are required to attend a one-time class on Sunday morning, March 12, during the 11AM service in room TH 4. This class will focus on what a dedication is, as well as provide you with some excellent tools and resources for leading your child.
Your evening will include dinner, dessert, a gift for the daughters and a special photo of the evening!
We hold two dances to accommodate all of our Fathers & Daughters – choose the night that is best for you! Our daughters are precious gifts from God, & this night will celebrate that fact by allowing their fathers (or other adult male) a time of demonstrating to these young ladies how they should be treated, honored & respected as they mature.
- Register for the March 31 dance – (Deadline: March 26)
- Register for the April 7 dance – (Deadline: April 2)
*After deadlines cost will be $20 per person, while space remains.
Suggestions for Fathers…
Make every effort to make the evening special for your daughter. Wear a tie, buy her flowers or a corsage, buy her a gift to start the evening off, write a special letter for her, or make a card for her to join you for the evening.
Get ready for a weekend of fun at the Hacienda Program Center near Sabino Canyon. Kids currently in 2nd grade are invited to attend a weekend camp, which will include archery, swimming, campfire, games and more! Space for this camp is limited so sign up early!

Picture this – – moms and sons running all over the Pantano campus attempting to collect a variety of crazy photos. Prizes will be awarded for various categories such as funniest photo, most creative photo, most colorful photo and most memorable photo. At the end of the hunt, we will all meet together for a meal that both mom and son are sure to love. Mom likes anything she doesn’t have to cook, right? Make sure you bring your smartphone or digital camera for this fun mother/son event! There will also be a photo booth available for a scrap-booking photo opportunity!
The Children’s Baptism class helps elementary children and their parents answer questions about baptism and aids parents in determining if their child is ready to make this incredible decision. Taught by Children’s Pastor Shelly Vasey, she will be teaching a class that is interesting, interactive, and informative for both children and parents to attend.
